Add option to choose which battery status to get

When ACPI returns multiple batteries, and not all of them related to laptop
battery, this option can be used to specify which battery to be used for
status information. Example of this is Logitech Unifying Receiver, returning
battery information for keyboard/mouse.

# Example of such behaviour is when using Logitech Unified Receiver

# Run acpi --battery and use Battery # for this value.

# This value is scaled per CPU, so on a quad-core machine, the load average
